Tuoi Tre Newspaper and the Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRC) will collect donations in support of Filipino victims of typhoon Haiyan, said VRC deputy chairman and general secretary Doan Van Thai.

>> Philippines storm kills estimated 10,000, destruction hampers rescue efforts>> Storm Haiyan leaves 14 dead, 81 injured in Vietnam Accordingly, all donations for Filipino victims of super typhoon Haiyan can be delivered to Tuoi Tre or the VRC, at 82 Nguyen Du Street, Hanoi, Thai said on Monday. As previously reported, the powerful typhoon slammed the Philippines on November 8 and caused very serious consequences both in life and property. According to the latest estimates, the death toll in the disaster may be up to 10,000 and the number of displaced people may amount to 600,000. “My feeling is that storm victims in the Philippines are starved of everything, from food to clean water and other essential items. Donations given by Tuoi Tre’s readers and others nationwide to those victims right now will help them survive the most difficult period after the storm,” Thai said. After receiving donations, the VRC and Tuoi Tre will coordinate delivery to the storm victims who have lost loved ones or whose relatives have gone missing, or whose houses or properties were devastated by the storm, Thai said.How to donate Locals can transfer donations to Tuoi Tre’s bank account No. 102010000118248 (for VND) at the Vietnam Bank for Industry and Trade – Branch No. 3 in Ho Chi Minh City. Donations can also be brought to the Tuoi Tre head office at 60A Hoang Van Thu Street, Ward 9, Phu Nhuan District, HCMC, or at the newspaper’s representative offices in provinces and cities.
